Mari Kurkova Overcame Time and Distance in Journey to Nebraska

August 21, 2018

At the Red/White Scrimmage on Saturday, Nebraska fans got their first look at Mari Kurkova, Nebraska’s newest setter. The 5-foot-10 junior started for the White team and set in the first two sets, finishing with 15 assists, two kills and two digs.

Kurkova’s journey to Lincoln is unlike any of the other Huskers who took the court in front of 7,965 fans on Saturday.

She grew up in Opava, Czech Republic, attending Přípotoční High School and playing club volleyball for PVK Olymp Praha.
